i have a PCTV card by Modular Technology, and i need to get the programming kit for it so i can control the tv card in my own application (under either 'Win95 or NT). thing is, the tech support people at MT weren't exactly helpful, and i was wondering if anyone out there can help. i'm specifically looking for the dev kit that Brooktree makes. (btw: i know it exists, since my card uses it, but i just haven't got the headers or import libraries)

btw2: i already tried Brooktree's and Hauppauge's website, but found nothing useful there.
btw3: i know there are drivers/sdks for Linux but i'm a bit sick of it right now, plus the fact that the font support under X is rubbish (when i last used it). and i'm not that used to X.

You can get a PDK from Booktree for the BT848, it comes with
the capture card, driver info for vfw.

christsui: could you provide me with some contact info? as far as i can remember, Brooktree doesn't officially exist anymore - their website just points to their parent company, ie. Rockwell, and i cant find much there.
btw: you said a pdk *with* a capture card? i just need the software / info bits - i'm not paying for another tv card! (i'm a 16-yr old college student - where the smeg am i supposed to get the  money from?!)

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
